The newest Star Wars trilogy has not exactly been well received by fans. There are plenty that find many issues in the storyline, dialogue, or whatever it may be, while others adore the Disney reboot of the franchise and embrace each film with open arms. The trilogy, though, without a doubt, divided the fan base even more so than Jar Jar Binks.
A surprisingly high number of fans believe that Disney should cancel or erase the Sequel Trilogy and replace it with something entirely new, preferably created by Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau. The two are an incredible team who have shown their passion for Star Wars with The Mandalorian; a show that touches Star Wars at its roots and embraces the essence of A New Hope.
Of course, with ideas of canceling the sequels come rumors that say Disney will move forward and try to remove the Rey and Kylo Ren story from canon through some tactic similar to that seen in Avengers: Endgame.
Now, those rumors don’t seem so far-fetched after Disney+ LatinoAmérica’s tweet from a few days ago.
It seems that this notion of abandoning the trilogy isn’t absolutely crazy. For those who don’t speak Spanish, the tweet translates to “The latest Star Wars Trilogy is the best,” followed by a bunch of red flag emojis. Is Disney giving us some sign that they want to abandon their work?
This latest trend points out red flags in potential partners, friends, or whoever, so Disney+ Latinoamérica is essentially saying that whoever thinks/says the Disney Star Wars trilogy is the best should potentially be avoided.
And yes, I could be reading into this Tweet far too deeply. Is the social media team trying to stay relevant by hopping on the “red flag” trend? Did someone lose their job after this? Is it just a ploy to create buzz around the Sequels?
For the company that created these films to be bashing them seems a bit out of the ordinary.
Now, this isn’t an opinion piece on which trilogy I find the best or what the majority may think is the best. The purpose is to point out that Disney, the company that created these films, is not standing by them and ask why. Even after so many fans had been ridiculed for their support of the films, it appears that Disney is joining in on that very same ridicule.
SO, COULD THIS BE A SIGN?
Will Disney actually ditch the Rey Skywalker story and replace it with one of the newest shows to hit the platform?
The reception of The Mandalorian compared to any of the sequel films is far different. The Mandalorian had successfully swept fans of all ages off their feet, was embraced around the world, and even took home a few awards. It revived many beloved characters and introduced plenty of new ones. After only two seasons, it’s already gotten a spin-off.
The Book of Boba Fett will premiere on December 29th, 2021. The show will go into the life of Boba Fett after he escaped the Sarlacc pit but may also contain flashbacks into his past life as a bounty hunter. These two shows have proven that Star Wars can successfully be revived and taken in a different direction.
So after figuring out this formula, will Disney use it to delete their sequel trilogy? Could they be using these new shows to make the move? Will these stories eventually push out what is to come in The Force Awakens and on? What will happen to Grogu? Comment what you think down below or on the Facebook page!
